At Jaama, understanding our customers’ businesses, their needs and working in partnership to develop solutions is an integral part of our culture.  Due to an exciting phase of phenomenal product and market growth, Jaama is eager to recruit talented and experienced Business Analysts into its well-funded, B2B fleet technology company.
